First-Year Council

Sixty first-year students comprise the First-Year Council. Throughout the year, FYC members plan events in conjunction with Student Services to connect with campus and reach out to members of the student body, as well as participate in a range of SGA programs. They will also work together with the Student Senate to produce legislation beneficial to first-year students. Members have opportunities to learn about the many facets of SGA and student life at UT while connecting with administrators to lobby on behalf of the freshman class. Contact Vice President Michael “Mickey” Curtis at sga2@utk.edu with questions. 

Get Involved

Students interested in getting involved with First-Year Council should complete the interest form at the beginning of the fall semester. Once complete, students will interview, and 60 first-year students will be selected. Vacant seats in FYC are filled upon occurrence and posted on our social media.
